When I discovered using fresh herbs on my everyday meals everything changed. A fresh herb, cooked or raw, can change a boring meal into something special.
Here is my special Rosemary Tofu Toast. Everyone I make this for thinks I am nuts when I pull raw tofu out of the fridge. Although I don't eat tofu a lot, every now and then I have to have this meal. Give it a try, and if you really don't like the idea of raw tofu, then use some raw goat cheese, avocado or just plain toast with the rosemary and olive oil.
1 piece of your favorite toast (mine is spelt sourdough)
1 sprig of fresh rosemary
2 tablespoons of EVOO
2 slices of raw (firm) tofu
Warm sauce pan and add olive oil (don't get it too hot).
Finely chop the rosemary and add it to the olive oil, and cook it for just a minute or so (it should sizzle, but don't let it burn).
Pop bread into the toaster.
When the toast is crispy, place about 1 tablespoon of the EVOO rosemary mixture on the toast.
Top with the tofu, and all the remaining EVOO rosemary mixture.
Salt and pepper and then top it off with chili flakes (a must).
